l e n s c r a t c h: John Baldessari and Catherine Opie

One of the best magazine articles I've ever read was in Esquire and it was about how to fry an egg. I never cease to think about that humorous and descriptive article when I pull out a small cast iron pan to make breakfast. And that article reminds me how I feel about John Baldessari. His work has resonated with me since I discovered it in art school, and it's his ability to make simple and humorous ideas into something more significant and resonate, that serves him so well.
